Welcome to Prague! Meet your Trip Leader at Václav Havel Prague International Airport at 3:00 PM and take included transportation to your hotel in the heart of the capital of the Czech Republic.
Join a local microbrewery tour with your Trip Leader and learn why the Czech Republic is a well-known haven for beer drinkers.
After learning about the Czech brewing process, have a traditional dinner with your new group of friends at the microbrewery.
After enjoying a delicious Czech breakfast, your Trip Leader will take you to Prague Castle--the largest castle in the world--for an included visit.
Explore the neighborhood of St. Vitus Cathedral and the colorful Golden Lane. After lunch, enjoy some free time to visit museums, wander through the Jewish Quarter, or stroll over the historic Charles Bridge. Grab a brew in the Beer Garden in Letna Park like the locals if you want to relax.
After dark, you'll see a completely different side of Prague as the Old Town comes alive with underground taverns and other nightlife.
Today, take the funicular, an inclined railway, up the hill to the Petřín Lookout Tower. Dubbed a mini version of Paris's Eiffel Tower, Petřínská rozhledna was built in 1891 for the Jubilee Exhibition. Climb the 299 steps to reach the top and marvel at the views.
Afterward, stroll through the landscaped gardens or head to the observatory. Return to the hustle and bustle of Prague’s Old Town for the afternoon before rejoining the group for dinner.
This morning board a train bound for Vienna, Austria’s capital.
Spend the afternoon walking around this charming city with your Trip Leader as you become familiar with your surroundings.
Visit the famous Naschmarkt, a cultural meeting point for local Viennese. Indulge in some of the best food and wine that Austria has to offer.
If you are on a December trip departure, you will visit the iconic Christmas Markets instead of Naschmarkt.
Enjoy a guided walking tour of the city with a local guide. Your guide will take you from the Gothic splendor of St. Stephen's Cathedral to the neoclassical grandeur of Graben Street and then on to Hofburg Palace, where Habsburg emperors once resided.
Spend the afternoon exploring this splendid city and its numerous museums, palaces, and parks. Vienna is well known as the capital of classical music, so we recommend catching a classical concert at the orchestra or a local church.

Walk around the city with your Trip Leader to become familiar with Hungary’s capital.
In the evening, head out and visit the famous ruin bars of Budapest. Board a local river cruise at sunset and admire the city from the water.

In the afternoon, return to Budapest and continue exploring the city. Spend time relaxing at the famous thermal baths or take a bike tour. Don’t forget to climb the Freedom Monument for spectacular city views.
Tonight, we’ll enjoy our final dinner together as a group and reflect on the fantastic adventure we’ve had across Central Europe.

Traveling with U30X has been life-changing for me. I've made lifelong friends with both travelers and staff. I can't come up with enough good things to say about the company, the people, and the experiences I've had! -Josh K.
There are not enough ways for me to describe how amazing this company is. After my first trip I always told people, it wasn't about the location, but the experience that u30x gave me. I have some of the best experiences of my life with u30x, and now a passion for travel. Also, their alumni community and groups are awesome too! -Casey H.
U30X is such an amazing travel community. Once your trip is over, the experience is not. They keep in touch with their alumni & provide platforms for travel questions, personal development, & community connections in your own backyard! If you're a young person looking to travel I highly recommend U30X! -Heather T.
